obama. ten weeks after he was inaugurated in 2009, he traveled to prague and laid out his vision in front of 20,000 people. >> as a nuclear power as the only nuclear power to have used a nuclear weapon, the united states has a moral responsibility to act. we cannot succeed in this endeavor alone, but we can lead it. we can start it. so today i state clearly and with conviction america's commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons. [ applause ] i'm not naive. this it goal will not be reached quickly. perhaps not in my lifetime. it will take patience and persistence. but now we, too, must ignore the voices who tell us that the world cannot change. we have to insist, yes we can. >> that was in 2009 just weeks after he was inaugurated. the following year in 2010, president obama convened the first nuclear security summit in washington. more than 40 heads of state got together to discuss among other things how to best safeguard the nuclear material that already exists around the world. that same year president obama signed a new stark treatment. an agr

and republicans on how to close the budget gap. it has been more than two weeks since president obama invited the major players to the white house to discuss the situation. as of this morning, no new talks are scheduled. brianna keilar joins us. so many republicans say they are pessimistic about a deal happening in time to avert this fiscal cliff. some say it's for political reasons. what can you tell us? >> it may all be for political reasons. that's no surprise in washington. as you can seen through dealmaking not just on this but things in the past couple of years between the white house and congress, there is almost this rhythm that has evolved. both sides are pointing to the other for an impasse. republicans like senator lindeyy graham just slamming the white house and tim geithner for a plan he laid out on behalf of the administration, laying out about $1.6 trillion in new revenues coupled with only about $400 billion in medicare cuts. listen to what graham said. >> i think we're going over the cliff. it's pretty clear to me they made a political calculation. this offer doesn't remotely
achieved nothing this week. this is "your money." president obama's offer to avoid the fiscal cliff was laughed at by republicans last week. this week the gop counter offered. theirs, extend tax cuts to the everyone including the rich. $2.2 million in areas from closing loopholes and deductions, savings on health care and cuts in discretionary spending. other than that, no specifics. president obama said the gop must agree to one thing to get anywhere close to a deal. >> we have to see the rates on the top 2% go up. we're not going to get a deal without it. >> speaker boehner fired back. >> this week we made a good faith offer to avert the fiscal crisis. now we need a response from the white house. we can't negotiate with ourselves. >> here we are just weeks away from going over the fiscal cliff. you probably wonder what's going on in these houses in washington. they put themselves and their political gains first and put their future in prosperity second. hey, you voted them in. remember what happened the last time washington got into a budget battle like this? lawmakers put a band
week has been wasted. given president obama won the election and seems to have most of the political leverage, what's the realistic deal to be made in the next 23 days? >> first of all i think something's going to happen. i hope it's large enough for people who want to see entitlement reform to vote for. the president has leverage but the republicans have leverage with the debt ceiling, hopefully cooler heads will prevail. theorist are coming forward on how to deal with this. it's a unique moment in history where every developed country in the world, economists on both sides of the aisle know the greatest threat of the country is fiscal solvency. the minority party is trying to leverage the president into doing something great for the nation. i hope the president soon will see the light. >> senator schumer, three weeks left. what's the compromise that both sides can live with on taxes, spending cuts and entitlement reform? >> i think we'll get a deal. everyone realizes how important it is, our economy is moving up some, not fast enough but some, and to go over the cliff would be terr
next week will be critical in terms of president obama and speaker boehner finding a compromise. shep? >> shepard: democrats are still saying what they have said all along and what the president ran on this is about taxes. >> that is true and they note president obama campaigned on upper income americans paying more so they intend to make sure that happens. the house democratic leader says the only obstacle is republicans refusing to ask the top 2% to pay more. >> this is a moment of truth. the clock is ticking. christmas is coming. the goose is getting fat. but in many homes across america, it's very -- very very lean time. >> after talking to reporters leader pelosi went to the white house to meet with the president over what's described as a number of issues. >> shepard: mike, the republicans have insisted from the very beginning that this goes well beyond the tax issue. >> shep, you are right, indeed speaker boehner says taxing high income people does not fix our massive fiscal mess. >> even if the president got the tax rate hike that he wanted, understand that we would continue t

[ laughter ] >> i see. >> so he wasn't a leader until you needed leadership. >> maybe until he was presented with a stark opportunity to lead. >> chris christie is a very popular politician right now. >> he is on a roll right now. he was on "saturday night live." he was quoting lyrics from springsteen, meet me tonight in atlantic city. he was on "the daily show." this is hilarious. he certainly seems to look the most vibrant of anybody i see on the gop side right now. but it's 2012, david. why are we talking about this so early? >> don't be so cynical. lawrence

giving stuff away. if obama remains intransigent, let him be the one to take us over the cliff, and then let the new house, which is sworn in weeks before the president, immediately introduce and pass a full across-the-board restoration of the george w. bush tax cuts. >> so i don't think that's inconsistent with anything that i just said. i agree with him 100%. what have i been saying for a week? do not cave. compromise. do not cave. if the president doesn't want to meet us halfway on massive entitlement cuts, on reforming those systems to save medicare and medicaid, social security, cutting defense, reforming the taxes, then do not meet -- if he doesn't want to meet halfway, but i've got to tell you, i am heartened with what i saw in the president's tone yesterday. i loved hearing him tell a group of americans yesterday, hey, we're going to get this thing done. i feel good about it. i love that he agreed to sit down with john boehner one on one. richard, you've done negotiations on all levels. i really liked the tone the president was sending. and by the way, i felt like charl

. it could block her promotion has secretary of state if president obama -- the food fight over rice not so much. >> susan rice misled the american people. she didn't tell them the truth despite the evidence that's available to her. >> what's the other big story of the week? susan rice where they are wrongfully attacking a person who has done nothing wrong. >> the republican smear campaign continues as more senators pile on. >> was the coverage fair to rice? joining us now in new york is kelly. kelly, isn't it odd for the press to beovering a nomination that hasn't happened based on closed door meetings between susan rice an senators where we don't know what was said? >> in a word, yes. it's very odd. it's not odd if you look at it through the lens of some of the partisanship and the partisanism in the coverage. originally we had fox news really trying to push this cover up and turn it into a big election related scandal. the petraeus story got more coverage than should have in an era that we have the economy and americans out of work. this is the next leg of that with the conservative medi
on this issue of taxes. the white house saying president obama is saying rates should go up on those making $250,000 or more. these are two starting proposals. the white house has put their proposal out last week. it really drew a hard line, calls for $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue, most of that coming from increasing taxes on wealthier americans, but this republican plan very different, does not call for increasing taxes on wealthier americans. president also wants to end congressional oversight of the debt limit. there's no such offer in the republican plan. in fact, some aides have told me that that is a pipe dream. so these two sides still very far apart. now, tonight, martin, the white house will be inviting members of congress here for the holiday party. house speaker john boehner will be here as well. there have been a lot of questions about whether these two will run into each other, whether they will talk about the fiscal cliff. no one is signaling what they might discuss, but house speaker john boehner when asked about tonight's event said that he thinks he might run into the preside
and four years from now. and we learned that a couple of weeks ago. with us now, we've got chief white house correspondent for "politico," mike allen, here with the morning "playbook." mike, "politico's" lead story is how democrats are pleading with the obama campaign to share their data. lots of luck. explain. >> no, you're very wise. so this data vault that the obama campaign put together -- and there are estimates that the campaign spent $100 million writing their own software, building this database. and this isn't the old name rank, serial number databases that campaigns had in the past. this is layers and layers of data about each of their supporters. their social media contacts. their car registrations. their propensity to volunteer as well as cell phone er, e-mail. this is very valuable. as you know, that can perish very quickly. it can get obsolete. in obama world, they're talking about how to maintain this data, how to work this muscle, keep this database vibrant. they've already started this week. i think all of you probably got the e-mail from stephanie cutter, the deputy c
criticism of president obama and susan rice over the september 11th attacks in bengha benghazi. they got a vote of confidence at a cabinet meeting this past week. >> susan rice is extraordinary. couldn't be prouder of the job she's done. >> she appears to be the top candidate to replace hillary clintons a secretary of state. but could gop opposition change that. joining me is adam shif who said it's unfair to go after rice for information given to her by the cia. so your take on her chance of being approved by the senate. is this worth it to the president? >> i think she would be an extraordinary secretary of state. he ought to go forward and nominate her. it wouldn't be a slam dunk, but she's a strong candidate and would be confirmed. and when you look at the criticism of her, it's so completely unjustified. no one is critiquing her job as ambassador where she organized the sanctions on iran. where she went after and depose moammar gadhafi. she's had a phenomenal record and the only criticism of her is she replied on talking points provided by the intelligence community. that seems to m

birth of politics. who is the master politician here? >> it's got to be obama. but in the end, you know, the most important word in all that you just read is "grease," really. i mean, you know, last week here, i made a heartfelt plea in favor of earmarks. and i think that that's how you get big deals done. you know, there are going to be politicians who are going to have to be bought the way abraham lincoln bought politicians with jobs when he got the 13th amendment passed. you know, and certainly for a long-term deal. having said that, let me also say, i'm not so sure we're going to get a long-term deal here. we may just go off the cliff and vote for some tax reductions right after january 1st. no one knows. >> joe, you're going to like this. i threw the lincoln analogy at a close aide to the president last week, and he said, you know, with this republican -- with the way politics of washington are today, there would still be slavery. that lincoln wouldn't have been able to navigate the polarization between the media, between -- it was an interesting and depressing observation from thi
